Listen to the audio recording of the Feb. 4 ACSA Candidate Forum

Candidates for state ACSA officer elections participated in an online town hall on Feb. 4, moderated by ACSA Senior Director of Communications Naj Alikhan.

Charlie Hoffman, superintendent of Shasta-Trinity ROP/Bella Vista Elementary and current ACSA board member, is running unopposed for the office of Vice President. Hoffman was joined by Barbara Martinez, principal of Pacific Grove Adult Education in Pacific Grove USD and current ACSA board member, as well as Dennis Cole, director of Humanities for the Orange County Department of Education, both candidates for the office of Vice President for Legislative Action.

“This town hall provided each candidate with a unique opportunity to talk about their platform and the future of our organization,” said ACSA President Holly Edds.

“We believe there are creative ways for our candidates to get their information out to all 19 regions and members statewide in a way everyone can benefit,” Edds said. “I encourage everyone to access this because so much of what they have to say will shape ACSA.”

Elections of officers will take place at the ACSA Leadership Assembly on May 9.
